If you're new to daily fantasy basketball -- maybe you started your DFS journey during the MLB or NFL seasons, or maybe basketball is your sport and this will be your first year giving it a shot -- you're in for a treat. The NBA scene changes hugely on a week-to-week, day-to-day, and -- depending on injury news -- even a minute-to-minute basis, making every slate a unique one that requires an ever-changing approach.
With so much changing so quickly, we're here with plenty of tools to help you out. We have daily projections, a matchup heat map, a lineup optimizer, and a ton of other great resources to help give you an edge.
We'll also be coming at you with this primer every day, breaking down a few of the day's top plays at each price point.
Let's take a look at who you should target on today's slate.
Best of the Best
Giannis Antetokounmpo (FanDuel Price: $12,200) - The way Antetokounmpo is dominating this season, he is becoming matchup-proof as he showed with 63.9 FanDuel points last night against the stingy defense of the San Antonio Spurs. The Milwaukee Bucks' forward is averaging 57.0 fantasy points per night, the second-most in the NBA. Even with the addition of another offensive weapon in Eric Bledsoe, the Freak was still the focal point on Friday, taking 24 shots and posting 35.5% usage rate. On Saturday, the opponent will get a tad easier as he faces the Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers allow 107.6 points per game while playing at the third-highest pace in the league.
